Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The electrifying follow-up to Dave Eggers' New York Times best seller The Circle.

When the world's largest search engine/social media company merges with the planet's dominant e-commerce site, it creates the richest and most dangerous - and, oddly enough, most beloved - monopoly ever known: The Every.

Delaney Wells is an unlikely new hire. A former forest ranger and unwavering tech skeptic, she charms her way into an entry-level job with one goal in mind: to take down the company from within. With her compatriot, the not-at-all-ambitious Wes Kavakian, they look for the company's weaknesses, hoping to free humanity from all-encompassing surveillance and the emoji-driven infantilisation of the species. But does anyone want what Delaney is fighting to save? Does humanity truly want to be free?

Studded with unforgettable characters and lacerating set pieces, The Every blends satire and terror while keeping the listener in breathless suspense about the fate of the company - and the human animal.

Brilliantly written, and beautifully read.

This is a 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World updated for today, where it doesn't need a malevolent state, just mobile phones, apps, and corporate control.

Great reading, wonderful drama.

Great book, wonderful narration. I didn't want this to end and glad I opted for audible (had to say that in case The Every is listening in)

interesting if disturbing satire

The story line was quite compelling, although I found the narration a bit distracting. This was especially true in the distinctive 'he said,' and 'she said' throughout.

Very clever and relevant

Apart from a bit too much plot stuff at times, i thought This was this was a brilliant exposure of the madness of social media and data driven human behaviour. A very entertaining and timely warning about the way we really are going right now.

Good story but irritating narration is distracting

I don't know if it's the narrator's style or if he's been asked to do it. But I found the way speech is reported bizarre, and it became a consistent and frequent irritant.

e.g. "blah blah blah", Delaney...... SAID.

The story is pretty good, perhaps not as good as the first. But certainly some interesting ideas.

The Dystopia is here and it’s hilarious

Dion Graham narrates thought with delight! His fast talking, tongue in cheek style turns what might be considered a dark future into a funny tale on a post-secret world.

I really enjoyed the Circle so picked this up with ease but found it strikingly different and in many ways far more prophetic. By the end I wanted to deleted all of my social media accounts but felt bad about doing so.

Clever, thought provoking and memorable!

beware!

The Circle was great. This is even better. Watch as is all comes true! So thought provoking, it is quite unsettling. Seeing technology filter into our lives, it won't be long before we see many of these fictional ideas running our lives.

Reads like one long rant!

I enjoyed ‘the circle’ but this reads like one long techno rant and is in serious need of an editor. You’ll see the ‘twist’ ending coming a mile off and it felt bolted on and not in keeping with its predecessor. The narrator mispronounced several words repeatedly which didn’t help. Hours of my life I’ll never get back. Pray they don’t film it.

- - he wondered

I really enjoyed it but i haven't seen the physical book. Was - - he said, - - they asked, the long deliberate pauses as actors are identified, there in the typography, a note from Eggers or a quirk of the narrator. Cos its annoying, esp when you get to hear it at, a guess, a couple of thousand times.
- - I think.

Scary premise

Having read THE CIRCLE, which I loved, I pre-ordered THE EVERY. This novel was scary in that the potential it occurring in real life is possible. It was well written and thought provoking. Every good idea had positives but even more negatives. Human nature to exploit, combined with lack of privacy is a disastrous mix. It led to a premise where the very act of thinking became scary. That one thought or innocent look could destroy your life.

This book took longer to read, as it was written in a style that found me having to stop and think more. Some aspects of THE EVERY was not written on an interesting way. The audiobook helped here as the narrator was very engaging. The plot twist at the end is well worth the read.

Dave Eggers states that this book would not be available on AMAZON, however this is not truthful. The ebook is available on AMAZON and the audiobook is available on AUDIBLE, an AMAZON subsidiary. If he really stood by his views about AMAZON they wouldn't be available through here.
